Cartier Déclaration Essence

A distinct take on Cartier’s Déclaration scent, Déclaration Essence builds upon the bestselling original. It features the same warm woody base but adds layers of fresh spices for an enticing finish. It’s sophisticated and sensual at the same time, making it a worthy addition to Cartier’s fragrance line—and ours.

Okay, seriously

This stuff smells fantastic. I don't usually wear cologne but I am a huge fan of Cartier Declaration -- I think it has a really nice piney base with lots of other things going on. I don't think it's a particularly strong or overpowering scent. I would give this 5 stars, except I think it's so incredibly expensive that I just can't. Still, the fact that I, a cheapskate, am considering plunking down for the full bottle is telling.

Strange Mix

This fragrance is one that I wanted to love but I found the mix of citrus and spice to be confusing rather than alluring. The citrus not was just a touch too sugary to blend in with the rich spices.
The scent did last for the entire day, however.

Smells better than you would think

I was surprised at the quality of this scent....

I could wear it everyday... and my lady loves it

She is always asking me over and over about the scent

Grab it fellas, your lady will LOVE IT!

A tad pricey, but worth it!

I received a bottle of Cartier cologne as a gift a few years ago, this one is even better! It is definitely not an "after the gym" type of fragrance. It is one you use to make you smell as good as you look.

Sophisticated scent

Cartier Déclaration Essence is a complex, sophisticated scent. It was a nice change of pace from my everyday fragrance but I've decided it's ultimately not for me, just a little too heavy and overpowering.

Cartier

The scent is long lasting but just not for me. This is just a personal opinion though and I'm sure other people love it.

It has a nice smell

The fragrance was nice and wasn't too overpowering. Smells like shaving cream and baby powder in a fresh way. Would be good for work in a office setting or a nice date.

Excellent Choice

Arguably one of my favorite colognes among a selection of six. This scent can be overpowering, depending on what you've gone with before, but it definitely is unique will turn a few heads.

Inviting hookah

A great confluence of the ambiance of your favorite upscale hookah bar (spice & intrigue ) and the most relaxing creamcicle on a hot summer day (crisp citrus). The fragrance wears for an exceptional length of time before fading.

Good scent

I like this scent and would use it on a regular basis if I had it on supply. That said, I have a few others I like as well that are still in rotation, so I don't know that I'll run out to purchase this one right away.
